11How are the artists chosen?
Artists apply for the shows on Zapplication ( by sending four images of their art and an image of their display to be juried by a panel of art professionals. As many as 350 artists have competed for 110-140 booths. A jury of three arts professionals reviews the work and chooses what they think is the best fine art and fine craft to be included in the show. Artists create the work, pay for their booth space, decorate their booth display and attend our show, some from as far away as California or Texas! This is their business. Please support them by collecting their unique work.
